"My therapy practice is rooted in a collaborative, non-pathologizing, strengths-based orientation. I listen in a way that is about understanding and seeing you as more than problems or struggles, offering transparency, gentle honesty, compassion, and respect for your self-determination and process. I work with you to create space to name problems or beliefs that may be unnamed; together we can examine how these forces are at work in your life, as well as in your relationships to yourself and others. I offer stability and clarity as you grapple with what is going on your life."

Therapy works. If and when you decide to take that first step, I think you will find me to be an insightful, responsive and non-judgmental individual with an extensive therapy "tool kit." My approach is interactive and personal. Together, we will engage in a process of exploration to clarify your concerns, access deeper layers of understanding, and find more effective answers to new or recurring life issues."

"Life guarantees all of us ups and downs- but in our highly individualistic culture, it is common to believe that one ought to be able to handle their own difficulties. In reality, stressful life events,transitions and challenges can become much more manageable with consistent support. Through active listening and reflection,I assist clients in accessing their own intuition about what makes their life feel satisfying. Therapy involves a growing self awareness that often uncovers outdated beliefs and patterns. I truly enjoy guiding clients through this discovery process.This often involves a look at how culture and upbringing influence behavior."

"Do you feel tired and overwhelmed? Are you exhausted from bobbing and weaving around the needs of others? Is it difficult for you to ask for and trust in help? While you feel depleted, there is still a spark within, guiding you to focus on your own wellness. Your head is barely above water, yet you are determined to emerge and need help to do so. Perhaps it is time to enter a relationship with a therapist; a collaborator who can journey with you to explore your past, build mindful awareness in the present, and develop skills to achieve your future goals of self compassion, acceptance and authentic connection to yourself and others.

Coping Skills Therapists
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, therapists in Oakland can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in Oakland or for an Oakland coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Oakland coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Oakland are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Oakland you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Oakland and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Oakland or family therapy in Oakland.
